Sample Mondays (2)

Monday, August 26, 2013

Lets keep the train going. Whats the concept? know those book samples you're able to download onto your eReader to give you a taste of a book before you buy it, which I happen to think is a cool idea because sometimes  book blurbs just doesn't work for me. I like that I can test the car before I drive it.

Today's sample was courtesy of Talking Dirty With the Player. Okay, who can pass up that cover? And I must admit the blurb kinda drew me in too BUT it was mainly the cover.  I didn't get a chance to read the sample over the weekend, hopefully I'll get a chance today.

Author: Jackie Ashenden
Genre: Romance
Sample Available: B&N / Amazon

Up-and-coming photographer Judith Ashton is pretty sure she has everything in her life under control. That is, until a blast from the past comes back to taunt her, in the shape of Caleb Steele, her older brother's best friend--the same man who broke her heart eight years ago. Their chemistry is combustible, but she's been fooled once by this player, and she's not going there again.
To pro rugby player Caleb, Judith has always been Kryptonite, but his former playboy lifestyle is the last thing she wants to be involved in, and he can't blame her. In the midst of her brother's threats to back off, and the deal of his career sending him far away from her, he knows he's playing with fire. And this is one game he's going to lose.

So what do you think of today's sample? what do you think of sport romances?

  1. Babe this sounds like a fun meme. I just downloaded a sample the other day but have to read it. I will have to partake today mine. I am bad I usually do not sample download a lot. I think I have only done a few. I always end up loving a blurb and has many great reviews then I am a impulsive click buyer. Then I will end up not liking the writing style.
    As I of right now I was sold on the whole older brother best friend theme crush. Thanks for sharing I am going to download the sample. Give me a minute as I have to run my son to work and then I will put mine up. Love sport Romance but have yet to read a Rugby Player hero.

  2. thanks Capri :)

    I'm just getting into sport romances...although I haven't officially read one as of yet. I signed up for a challenge that Anna over at Herding Cats has...they seem pretty good.

  3. I would love to do a challenge but I already signed up the beginning of the year for some challenges and have not done any of them. I swear I have some kind of ADD that I can not do what I say I am going to do.

  4. feel bad, I'm the same way. I was able to catch up on some of the ones I signed of form, but I've been slacking lately.
